Director of the Civil Aviation College colonel Enzo Dinosera was appointed head of the Commission. Chile largest daily La Tercera revealed a tiny secret: the Commission was created on the initiative of the Ex-Commander of the Chilean Air Force Ramon Vega, who is currently a senator. The senator himself saw UFOs twice and believes that UFO actually exist. That is why he isn't going to waste time to prove this fact. In 1988, the crew of a spy plane saw "the lights of a city" downward, they took the lights for the city of Antofagasta, the largest port in the north of Chile. But suddenly the "city" took off and flew! The plane crew was scared to death and immediately made their way to the aerodrome. Another flying city was seen in April 1996 in the southern part of Chile. Aircraft mechanic Joaquin Himenes from the airport of Los- Cerrilos in Santiago saw a huge UFO at the beginning of October 1996. The mechanic told: "The UFO came at the speed of about 50 miles per hour. The object was surrounded with a green phosphoric glow; it approached the landing strip and hovered in the air right before a cabin of air traffic controllers. Then it lost height, and a red light was going through its bottom, but it didn't touch the ground. Finally, the object soared upwards and flew away northward. The whole event lasted for 15 minutes." Himenes saw UFO even before that instance. He was member of the crew of a plane following from Punta-Arenas to Puerto-Williams on December 14, 1992. He says: "We saw an orange glowing ball of about two meters in diameter, the ball followed us. The pilot contacted the air traffic controllers and asked if they saw anything beside the plane. The controllers answered that the radar registered some object, but according to the flight schedule no planes should be in the area. The orange ball followed us right up to Puerto-Williams, and then it flew away to the Atlantic coast." Gustave Rodrigues, who had been working an air traffic controller for 27 years, was appointed secretary of the newly created Commission. Rodrigues told: "I have a taped conversation between a pilot and an air traffic controller in the airport of Ariki. The pilot said that when an UFO approached the plane, there were some troubles with the communication system. When the tape is played, it seems that the pilot had said a complete long phrase, but only very beginning and its end were recorded." The stories about so-called "flying houses" are the most strange ones among the recently registered UFO cases in Chile. The first occurred on April 16, 1990 when an UFO overturned a house. Investigator Raul Hayardo says that he interrogated the witnesses and took pictures of the incident site. "A red semicircular object with white flashing lights flew directly above one of the buildings at a very low height of about ten meters." The Balboas were quietly sleeping in the house. The UFO flew above the left side of the building and lifted it a little. Then the house fell of one side, and the front door turned blocked at that. The Balboas family had to break off some planks to get out of the house. The saw the strange object go up and hit against transmission facilities. A bright flash followed. Finally, the UFO vertically soared up and disappeared in the sky within several seconds. Mister Balboa said: "The thing resembled a flaming ball. While I was staring at it, our home collapsed." When the site was examined later, the people saw that some plants on the plantation were dried, some slightly or completely burnt. Anomalia.ru ** =A91999 "Pravda.RU".
